Chelsea's Eden Hazard: Playing for Real Madrid is everyone's dream

Wednesday, 11 Jul, 2018

According to newspaper reports, Perez, the Real Madrid president, has already reserved the No. 7 shirt for Chelsea's Eden Hazard and even allocated him the same parking spot number at the club's Ciudad training complex.

Over the past few Premier League seasons, Eden Hazard has been impressive for the Blues and he is also a target for Barcelona's La Liga rivals Real Madrid.

With Belgium, Hazard has shown off his versatility, demonstrating he doesn't always have to score to be effective.

Chelsea's hopes of holding on to their key asset aren't helped by the uncertainty surrounding their manager as Antonio Conte remains in charge, despite a protracted saga involving Napoli's Maurizio Sarri.

Chelsea playmaker Hazard, preparing for a World Cup semifinal with Belgium, has spoken of his admiration for Zidane and been strongly linked with a big-money move to the Bernabeu.

"I think Real is everyone's dream", Hazard told beIN Sports.

"Does Real make me dream less without Zidane?"

"For now, it's the World Cup". It has been a exciting time for, full of success and difficulties as there is a lot of pressure to succeed at Real Madrid, but I know that I will never forget how much I have enjoyed football here. As I have said at least 100 times, I am at Chelsea and for the moment nobody has made me an offer'.

The Blues finished fifth and won the FA Cup last term.

It claimed that Hazard is "tired" at Chelsea and wants to leave as he feels the club are no longer able to match his personal expectations.

The Portugal worldwide scored two goals against Juventus in Real's 4-1 win in the 2017 Champions League final and earlier this season struck a jaw-dropping bicycle kick against the Italians in a 3-0 win in a quarter-final first-leg game in Turin which prompted Juve supporters to give him a standing ovation.
